The first reason - low immunity, is a physiological reaction that allows the embryo, then a fetus develop in the woman's body, while its cells are foreign to the body of the mother.

The second reason - the decline of motor activity of smooth muscles of internal organs, including the urinary tract. This occurs under the influence of the female sex hormone progesterone Progesterone - norm and pathology  Progesterone - norm and pathology
 . The main task of progesterone during pregnancy - the suppression of motor activity of muscles of the uterus. And since the innervation of the smooth muscles of the whole is unified by autonomic nerve trunks from which the organs of the abdominal cavity, pelvis and retroperitoneal depart branches of nerves, "slow down" the work of any particular branches impossible. As a result, except for the uterine musculature is also decreased motor activity of the gastrointestinal tract and urinary tract. All this leads to chronic constipation and infections of the kidneys and urinary tract.

Urinary tract infections are very dangerous for pregnant women, so the appearance of even minor changes in the urine of women appointed anti-inflammatory and antibacterial treatment.
